Cllr Warren updated on the meeting that was held on Wednesday 27th February between representatives from Cornwall Council, St Just in Roseland Parochial Church and the Parish Council.

Several options were discussed and dismissed as there was no funding available. There is not a legal requirement for us to provide disabled toilets in our block and there is a disabled toilet in the church. The septic tank has been emptied and has been given a clean bill of health for another 18 months. The length of lease would be checked by Cornwall Council.

The discussion focused on access to a disabled toilet, it was highlighted in discussion that the current facilities were being maintained and these provided a 24 hour cover for others.


With a show of hands it was agreed that the 2 Members of Public could speak. Standing Orders were stopped.


Concern was raised why the current planning permission for the café does not include 24 Hour access to their disabled toilet. It was agreed that the Clerk would contact the Parochial Church to raise this question and also enquire about the access to the disabled toilet in the Church.
